The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) assisted Palawan, through the deployment of staff and volunteers to distribute face masks and serve Hot Meals to 150 individuals at the evacuation center in Brgy. Malinao, Narra, which was affected by Tropical Storm (TS) Maring, causing waist to chest deep flood.
An estimate of 300 families are affected in various municipalities in the South of Palawan. PRC Palawan chapter will continue to provide humanitarian interventions in the different affected areas.
“Sa panahon ng sakuna, laging nariyan ang Philippine Red Cross upang tumulong sa mga nangangailangan. Nakaalerto ang buong Philippine Red Cross kasama ang ating mga chapter’s upang mas mabilis ang paghahatid ng tulong sa mga naapektuhan ng TS Maring,” PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon said.
PRC already provided assistance to affected communities by TS Maring, conducting rescue operations in flooded areas in Santa Ilocos Sur. PRC will continue to monitor and provide humanitarian interventions as TS Maring causes severe flooding in the different areas of Northern Luzon.
